For those who are having trouble with the tablet version, I use AC on my iPad. It's data overlays on the tablet version of Gramin Blue Charts, which can be had for about $24. This ipad is dedicated to navigation and become a defacto third chart plotter.

Exactly! AC overlays nicely with Garmin Bluechart Mobile. Get a new iPad w/ GPS and enjoy! In many ways it is better than the $10,000 (+/-) chart plotter that came w/ the boat, but we use both, along with paper charts.
